HOME-SPIRATION: Bold Doors

In honor of our new backdoor being installed today, I thought I would share some of my favorite home-spiration images of bold new doors. You can you use color on any door to give a space a unique feel or just a pop of color!

Such an adorable pantry door for a fun and funky kitchen!

WEDDING WEDNESDAY: Fall Harvest Wedding

When it comes to fall you always think of leaves changing, pumpkin spice lattes, and crisp fall air (oh wait I live in Texas, it was 95 degrees outside this week!). Despite my fall weather set backs I decided to dedicate this weeks WEDDING WEDNESDAY post to a Fall Harvest wedding theme. Rich colors, great weather, and anything pumpkin will do!

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Plaid Fox

In my opinion it really takes time and effort to find good online home goods stores that are the generic West Elm or Pottery Barn. Don’t get me wrong I do love those places, but sometimes you are wanting something a little bit more original, something a little less expensive, or just something new! The website of the week posts really started so I could keep track of all of the wonderful and amazing home goods online stores in one place. Now I really just can’t wait to share them with everyone! Here is a new one I found just the other week called http://www.PLAIDFOX.com

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

My favorite part about this online home goods story is that you can shop a specific style. If you’re looking for a great industrial piece of furniture you can go straight to industrial, if you’re looking for a great coastal accent for your lake house you can go straight to all the coastal home goods! LOVE.

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

It just gets even better, because if you don’t know what your style is, or really don’t know what you’re looking for but want something for your space you can take their “Find Your Style” test and see what would go best with your taste! Here were my results:

They also run an amazing blog called THE DEN with home decorating ideas, recipes, and interviews with artists and designers.

REINCARNATION: Floor Lamp Favorites

Happy Monday morning everyone! I thought I would bring a little light to everyone’s week and talk about, well of course, lights! When I used to think of floor lamps I would think of the plastic floor lamp from Target that was in my dimly lit dorm room. Tacky and not functional. However, of recent I have rediscovered the beauty of the floor lamp when searching for lighting for our living room. Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images of floor lamps a few amazing options for any space!

SUNDAY INSPIRATION: Well Done

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

I always grew up knowing that actions speak louder than words, but I don’t think I realized how important that is until later on in my life. Actions will always speak louder than words, you can say all of the things you want to about your world, your intentions, and your relationships, but at the end of the day what really matters is the job you did and the actions you took. I think in general people tell each other a lot of things, they tell themselves a lot of things, but what really separates us is the actions we take. We can tell each other we want deeper connections and different relationships, but actions are what matters. You can tell yourself all you want that you’re going to get up early and work out, blog, clean the house (whatever the case may be) but what really matters is if you actually do it. Now I am a dreamer, a thinker, and a planner. I am amazing at those things. I can dream up the biggest plans, think of the most amazing things to do, and plan them out. What I am going to strive to do this week, and beyond, is focus on the “doing” part. Focus on saying what I want, and working every day to achieve it. I am going to strive to let my actions speaks for themselves.

HOME-SPIRATION: Painted Ceilings

From my extremely limited painting experience, I have come to realize that painting the ceiling is possibly the worst and most difficult part of the whole ordeal (so naturally David is the one who has painted all of our ceilings! Thank goodness for him!) This home-spiration, while back breaking, is such a great way to bring color and a bit of quirk to any space! Plus the idea is perfect if you only want to paint one wall, why not the ceiling? Here are some of my favorite home-spirations for painted ceilings.

WEBSITE OF THE WEEK: Terrain

In my search for new home goods to post here or to put in my own home, I am ALWAYS looking for new home good stores.

Terrain is a new website I came across the other day while online “shopping” for my latest REINCARNATION: Something Blue.

SUNDAY INSPIRATION: Be Brave

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to write another Sunday Inspiration post. It has been awhile and I really have missed the time to reflect on some really amazing quotes (I have a whole stash on my desktop!). I think for a long time in my life I had a problem being brave. Being brave scared me because I didn’t know what would come of it, what would come of me speaking my mind, doing something I had never done before, or facing something extremely difficult or painful. I was afraid of being brave, I knew I was capable of being brave, I was just too afraid to try. I have realized this really isn’t any way to live! I want the ability to deal, fix, tackle any challenges that come my way and not shy away from fixing anything. Now that I have the ability to pray for braveness I no longer worry about what might come my way, I know that I can always ask for what I need and I will receive it. Everything we need we already have within us, and that is an extremely beautiful realization for me.
